I HAVE now completed, as \vell as I have been able, the Bolles Genealogy. It has been the labor of 
my leisure hours for rauny years ; oft-times wearisome, and sometimes vexatious, attended with difficulty, 
perplexity, and expense ; yet, on the whole, pleasant, and in many instances productive of agreeable results, 
valuable acquaintances, and invaluable friendships. I almost regret the completion of this self-imposed task ; 
and to part with my manuscript, even to the printer with a view to its publication, is a sort of bereavement, 
not unlike that which we feel when our children leave us, to enter uj^on lives and homes of their own. Ajid 
yet I am glad that my task is done, and that I can now offer the fruits of my labor to those who are interested 
like myself in rescuing from oblivion the early records and the memory of our family. 

Our family record is one of which we have no reason to feel ashamed. If not many great, or famous 
names, adorn our annals, the pages of our history, unstained by vice and crime, are crowded with the names 
of the good, the just, the honest, and the true ; of excellent men and worthy women, whose memory, like that of 
the just, is blessed. To you, my American kinsmen, who feel interested in tracing the growth of our family, 
I need offer no apology for having entered on my work as genealogist. And yet most men are apt to regard 
such work as little better than itUeness. To look forward, and to care only for the future, is the almost 
universal practice ; — to "let the dead past bury its dead," is the prevailing principle, — of this busy and ever- 
hurried generation. How few of us pause to consider that our grand-children, whom we fondly love, will 
soon care as little for us, as we now seem to care for our grand parents, and remoter ancestors. None of us is, 
however, quite willing to die and be forgotten : — 

"For who, to dumb forgetfulness a prey, 

This pleasing, anxious, being e'er resigned. 
Left the warm precincts of the cheerful d.\y, 
Npr cast one longing, lingering, look behind !" 

This latent wish to be remembered is easily excited to action. In the course of my genealoiTical researches 

I wrote to one of our name for infoi-mation in regard to his parentage. He seemed to stand alone and 

disconnected from any known branch of our tribe, but his face bore the unmistakable Bolles ima"-e and 

superscinption. To my first letter he made no answer. Ills silence did not surprise me ; for in many other 

j instances I had already met with the like disappointment. I wrote again,* and my second letter was 

j answered by the statement that my correspondent knew the name of his father, but beyond that was wholly 

I ignorant of his ancestry. A thu-d letter secured a promise that he would write to the far-awav town of his 

i birth, and obtain, if possible, some information. ^Months passed away, and no information came. 

I then made a journey of thirty miles to call in person upon this dilatory correspondent. I found him at 

* And here, once for all, I beg pardon of the multitudes of far-oflf cousins whom I have persecuted and bored with pertinacious inquiries, i 

and muliituJinous letter-, on the unprotitahle suhjwt of "endless genealogies," — hereby promising that I will no more distuib their patience |

home, — surrounded by his family, aiul, at t!io inonieiit \vc met, hoUling iii his arms a beautiful child of four 
years old, uf whom he was manifestly botii proud and fond. "Is it your son, ]\Ir. Bolle.-,"' inqnircil I. 
" No, sir," answered he, '' my grandson." " Do you love him ?'" lie ans^vercd by a hug and a kiss that 
rendered all words idle. " Do you believe he loves vou?" "Of course he does I Don't vou love crand-iia, 
darling ?" and little curly-head returned the embrace and caress. " And yet, ilr. Bolles,"' said I, — " and yet, 
ill forty yeai-s from now, if he follows your example, he will not even renicnd)er your namel"' My remark 
struck home to his conscience and his heart. "With tearful eyes he renewed his promise, and in three weeks 
from that tinie I received from him a document which enabled me to complete, by the addition of the one 
ncedliil link, the genealogical chain which connected him with our common ancestor of 1608. 

I I have studied my own history for the purpose of ascertaining, if possible, why I have departed from the 
j common indifference in regard to genealogical matters. At my graduation from Brown University, in 1820, 
I President Wayland requested me to write an oration on " The Memory of tJie Dead." Whac induced him to 
I assign to me such a topic I can only conjecture. But its effect upon my mind I can very distinctly remember. 

It taught me to look, backward, and to regard the past with unwonted interest. From that time I bcijan to i 
I care especially for the surviving patriarchs of our family, and for its records and traditions, ily father, Rev. i 
I Matthew Bolles, encouraged this disposition, and laid before me such memoranda as he had colkcted in 

regard to our ancestors; as did also rav uncle, Juda-e David Bolles. of Ashford, Conn., from whom I learned 
i much concerning the Bolles settlers of New London. In the State Department of ilassachusetts I 
j found among the Colonial records some traces of the family earlier than its settlement in Connecticut, and 
' some indications of Its English relationships. These discoveries led to a careful examination of the early 
I records of towns, counties, colonies, and states ; and to a large correspondence with men bearing our name 

on both sides of the Atlantic. At last I found myself fairly committed to the enterprise of becoming the 

Bolles genealogist ; and under the influence of that pledge, I labored to perfect this work, and prepare it 

for the press. 

• The arrangement of ray materials became a matter of deep anxiety and careful study. I had never 
! seen a genealogical work which was not confused and confusing ; but it seemed to me possible to overcome 
I this difliculty, and the result of my reflection was the plan adopted in this volume. My publishers pronounce 
! it a success, and I trust that my readers will concur in that opinion. 


' I will endeavor to explain this method. On the magin of the page which contains the record of any name 
appear also the lineal male ancestors bearing the Bolles name as far back as Joseph Bolles the Englishman 
who founded our family on this Continent. Suppose that the Kev. Edwix A. Bolles of Orangeburg, 
S. C, wishes to learn who were his forefathers. He looks for his own name in the Index, and finds it 
recorded on p. 31 of the Genealogy. Turning to p. 31, he finds, by inspection of the margin, that he is the 
sr/7i of Abiel Bolle.s, who was bom in 1780 ; the granrhon of Jesse Bolles, who was born in 1749, and 
died in 1836 ; the great grandson of ExoCH Bolles, who was born in 171-5, and who died in 1800 ; the 
great-great grandxon of John Bolles, who was born in 1677, and who died in 1767 ; the great-great-grral 
grandson of Thomas Bolles, who was bom in 1644, and who died in 1727: and the great-great-great-gntii 
grandson of Joseph Bolles, who was bom in 1608, and who died in 1678. Any other name can be traced 
in like manner, and thus it is easy to discover the relationship, whether direct or collateral, of every person 

I named in this volume. 


To ifr. II. R. Danfortli, the printer; wlui lias .-^o neatly :inil ae<;ur;itely transfomicii my mami.script into 
print I t'e(>l dtn-ply imlehted, and I trust that all of my readers \yill unite in tills feeling. 

Having hecn occupied for the List three years and aiwlCin the military .-erviec of the United States, I have 
been unahh' tt> collect and receive many of the removals, births, marriages and deaths which have oceurreil I 
daring that eventful period. These omissions can only be supplied in a subsequent edition of mv book, j 
Each family in wliiih those changes have occurred will gratify nie by making tliom known in the way already 
suggested. I hope that I may thus hear from all who feel interested In this work. 

It is matter of regret on my part that I have been unable to establish the point of connexion between 
the English and American Bolleses. Perhaps some future inquiry or inquirer may be more successful. I | 
also regret that I have not succeeded in obtaining in all cases the full and exact information which I have 
attempted to procure from some branches of our American family.^ This failure is not owing to anv lack of j 
effort on my own part. It is incident, I suppose, to every inquiry so widely extended in time and space, and : 
I ought to wonder that my endeavors have been so well rewarded, rather than to repine, that some who have 
been harassed by my importunity have failed to give me all the information that I desired. 

Tiu; statements entertained in this little volume may be regarded as authentic, for 1 have, in every case, • 
consulted the best authorities, and have very seldom depended on anything but public records, an'l crio-inal j 
family registers, or the written declarations of the parties themselves in interest. I 

A brief Inspcctiou of this volume will show how widely our family is diffused. From the spot of its first | 

establishment on the coast of !Maine it has spread through every state and territorv of the Union, so that it i 

would bo no very ditfioult task for me to traverse the whole United States, findincr everv night a shelter j 

beneath the roof of kinsmen who bear our ancestral name, and who would, I am sure, be to receive him | 
whose letters have, for many years, made known to them the writer of this Genealogy. To their kindness I 
now commend this product of my long continued, and never unwilling, labor.

III.." (A. D. 121G — 1272). "Its principal scat seems to have been Bolle Hall, in Swineshead, until the close of the reign 
of Edward IV. (A. D. 1483.) when the elder branch of the BoUescs became settled at Ilougli, near Alford. in Liiicolnshire,

Louth; Edward; JIartha ; Catherine: and Bridget. Illingworth, from whom I quote as above, informs us that Sir John 
Bolle lived in the reign of Elizalieth :iiid James, and was distinguished alike by bis learning and military exploits. For 
his gallant conduct in the Expedition of l."*OG against Cadiz, he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth. During the adminis- 
tration of the Earl of Essex he served with distinction in Ireland, commanded at the taking of the castles of Donolong and 
Lifford, and was appointed Governor of Kinsale. His sons. Charles, John, and Edward, became conspicuous and honora- 
ble men. His portrait, by Zuch.Tro, >till exists, and an engraving of it may be seen in Illingvvortli. He is, undoubtedly, 
the hero cf that beautiful ballad, -The Spanish Lady's Love," wliich forms No. XXIII. of Bishop Percy's "Relics of

IG. Joii-V BoLLKS, E-q., of llanirh and Thorpe Hall, born 1030. d. 1G79, married Ursula Bradley, dan. of George

17. John", E-q., born IGOo, d. 17^2, without male issue, aged 7'J, leaving two daughters. 

Thus, in the 17th generation, seems to have been extinguished the oldest male line of this ancient family. 

I now return to the younger branch, beginning with —

Illingworth quotes from Slowe's London, edition of 1G33. an epitaph, in Latin, from a tablet in St. Swithin's Church, which 
states that George, the ohlest son of .Sir John Bolles of Scanqiton, d. in his twentieth year, in lG32.t The death of Sir 
John Bolles occurred March 8, 1618, when he was 67 years old. He was buried in the chancel on the north side of the 
altar in Scampton Church, where lie the remains of his wife and not less than twelve of their descendants. He nas suc- 
ceeded in the title and estates by hi* son —

Hunnington, in the Co. of Lincoln, in Oct. 1637. Sir Robert was a distinguished patron of the fine arts, and lived much 
among literary men. In 1G52, Shirley dedicated to him .a play, ("The Imposture"). In 1655, Rawlins executed a medal 
of him and his wife, mentioned in "Walpole's Anecdotes of Painters. &c., 3d edit.. Vol. 2, p. 258, and copied in IllinL'worih. 
In 1660, Ive was one of the Grand Jury for trying the Regicides at Hicks's Hall. In ICGl, he was member of Parliament 
for the city of Lincoln. He d. Aug. 1663. aged 44, leaving two sons, (John and Robert.) and five daiighters, each of whom 
inherited a handsome estate. He was buried in St. Switliin's, by torch light. He bequeathed the manor of Scampton to 
his son — 

15. Sir Jonv Bolles, who m. twice, viz., 1st, in Nov. 1663, Elizabeth, dau. of .John Pinsent, Esq., by whom he had

16. Sir .John' Bolles. only surviving son of Sir John, succeeded his father, and lived in great splendor at Scamptcn. 
He represented the city of Lincoln in five '-ucce~sive Parliaments. He d. single, Dec. 1714, and was buried in St. Swithin's

the years llUl and 10(j:j, twenty-live entries of births, bajitisni-. mairia^es, ai.d burials, of the Lotlcs family. Li a larfio j 
majority of instances the name is spelled 1Jollf.:5; but in si-veral cases this is interchanged with Lowlf.s, in recordinjr the 
name of the same individnal. On the ciinimiinion service of this church, a silver chalice and plate, is this in.-cn)ition, " S''. | 
J°. BoLi.i:s, Bar'., to the Church of .S<'ampton, ICJi." But on the [lulpit cloth ((jf Genoa velvet, deeply fringed with 
gold.) his name, according to Illingworth, is emliroidered as '■ Sir John boi.i:s." On the tomb-stones of the Sir J(dm Bolles 
■who died lG4i^, and of Lady Kalherine. his wile, who died l(j-ll. the name is spelled " Boi.LES ;" so, also, in the epitajdi 
of their son George. The diti'erent coats of arms, iScc., of the English family, from liurkc's Eneyc. of Heraldry, Berry's 
Encycl. Heraldica, and other works on heraldry, exhibit the oiiginal unity of the Bolleses, Bowleses, tic., as well us the 
wide diffusion of the family throughout England, 

I have thus traced, as fully as I could, the oldest and the youngest of the six sons of John Bolle, Sheriff of Lincoln, 1477. 
The male issue of William, his third son, as already stated, is represented by Charles O. Bowles, Estp, of Nonh Aston, 
Oxford Co., but I have not llic interniediale genealogical links, nor have I the lineage of Robert, John, and Thomas, the 
three other sons of that distingui-hed ancestor. Perhaps one of these three is the ancestor of John Bolles of 'Wallingtun, 
who, in the ilst year of Henry VHL (l.J.jO) was Sheritf of the County of Herts, and who m. Anne, dau. of John Da\en- 
ish of AVeston. in that Co.— ( 'Ch'tferbi'f/:'s His*, of Herts. Hmi. MSS..\h()\. -p. 9.) This John Bolles of "Wallington, had 
at least seven children, one ( Elizabeth ) m. William Chi-ell ; another ( Dorvthi/ ) m. Sir Balph Bowlett, Kt. ; a third (Anne) 
was m. twice, her (irst husband was John Burgoyne, and her second was Sir Bobert Catlin, Kt., Lord Chief Justice of the 
Court of King's Bench, 1-574, (See Clatterhvck's Hist, of Herts.) but Lord Campbell (Lives of the Chief Justices) says 
that Lady Catlin was a dau. of Thomas Bowles. Esi]., anil had an only dau. and heir, who m. Sir John S[iencer of Althor[ip, 
and that from them are descended the Dukes of Marlborough. Thomas was her brother, not her father.* A fourth child 
(George Bulles of AVallingford) m. Alice, dau. of Richard Fitz Hugh, and had six children — two sons, (Frr.ncis and 
Thomas,) and four daus., (Ellen, Lucy, Anne, and Ursula). A fifth (yicholas) d. without issue. Of Thomas 1 have no

Thomas Bolles of Wallington, who m. Mary, dau. of Sir Rali)h Sadler of Staiiilon, Kt. bniincrct. and was Sheriff of 
Herts in 157G, ( \.Sth Elizabeth). He had numerous children, viz.. T/io/nci.'s, Hichnrd. Ralph, JIaria. Ell-n. and Jane.

Section I. JOSKVH BOLLES, 1608—1678. 

The first of our name who came from England to America was Joseph TjOLLES, the precise period and place of 
whose arrival, I have been unable to a.scertain. In the year 1G40, the earliest date wliich I can lind connected with 
his name, he was ena:aged in tra<Ie ut 'Winter Harbor, near the mouth of the Saco river, in the then Province of 
Maine. — (Folsom's History of Biddeford and Saco, p. bo.) The records of the General Court of Maine for 16-10 con- 
tain this passage : — ".Joseph Bollcs hath presented to the Grand Inquest, Thomas Heard, for being dnaik, 

and threatening iiim with many violent words to break open the store. He (the delinquent^) further declareth that he 
received his drir.k at the iiouse of W™ Scadhick." 

Mr. Bolles afterwards removed to Wells, Me., (Id. p. 58,) where he held the office of Town Clerk from 1654 to 10G4, 
during which period his dwelliiig-iiouse, aud the first volume of the town records, were burned by Indians. — ( J orA 
County Register, VoL XII.. p. 25y.j 

The following cop}' of his Aimily record is from his autograph in the VTells town records : 

The ages of Mr Jos: Bolles was borne in Feb: 1608 
And Mary Bolles his wife in M.areh 1624 
Mary Bolles their daugh"' borne 7 Augs' 1C41 
Tho; Bolles his oldest sonne first Desemb 1G44 
Sam: Bolles was borne 12 March 1C46 
Hafl.ih Bolles Xoveb 25 was borne 1619 
Eliz: Bolles was borne 15 day Jar.u: 1G52 
Joseph Bolles was borne in ilarch 15"' 1654 
Sara Bolles was borne 20 Janury 1657 
Mercy Bolles was borne 11 Agstt 1661 

I have been led to conjecture that Jlrs. Bolles was a daushter of Morgan Howell, who owned land at Cape Porpoise, 
and who devised and bequeathed to Mrs. B. and her children all his estate and property, and appointed her Executrix 
gl of his will, Nov. 17, 1666.— r Vork Co. Reg., II. 120, and IV. 3 and 49. J 

-^1 Mr. Bolles died at "Wells, Me., in the Fall of 1678. His will bears date Sept. 18ih, of that year, and was admitted 
o' to probate in November. 1673. At the end of this Section I insert the Will, and the Inventory of his real and personal 
^^ propertv. His whole family survived !iim, and ilrs. Bolles was living in 1684; after which I know nothing of her his- 
? , tory. He was a large land owner. At his death Iiis real estate, reduced already by divers grants to his children, was 
'■r \ appniised at £5.30. Various circumstances show that he was. a man of high character and standing, universally respected 
p[ and honored. In July, 1653, Commissioners of Massachusetts held a Court at Wells, and appointed him "Clerk of the 
Writts, with power to grant Warrants, Attachments,"' &c. — (Mass. Colonial Records, Vol. IV. pp. 142-3.J In 1660, 
tho King having restored to the Gorges family what had been usurped by Massachusetts, Archdale, Gorges's Agent, 
came to jiaine v.ilh commi-=sions for various persons, and amoni; others Mr. Bolles, as Counsellors and Magistrater. 
In 1664, Sir Ferdinando Gorges, grandson of tlie Patentee, commissioned "Sundry of his loving friends," 
including Mr. Bolles, " as Deputies and C<jmmissioners f(jr the government of the Province of Ma;ne.'' — ( York Vo. 
Re J., XV. 256.J Of Jlr. Bolles's ciiildren, Mary, the first bom, married Col. Charies Frost of Kittery, hy whom she 
had ?i large fanily. The date of her m.arriage is not given. Her father's will, however, shows that fhe was married 
before its date. Sept. lb. 1678. She died Nov. 11, 1704. Col. Frost was one of the most distinguished of the early 
inhabitants of J[::ino. — (Folsom's Blddeford and S-ico, pp. 146, 15!), l'J5; Br. Usher Parsons's Gem-al. of the Fr,-:sf. 
Family ; New Lr.g. Hist, and Gen. Reg., 1840, p. 261 ; t/ie Frost Funuly BiUe.j Fliza. or Elizabeth, married a Air. 
Locke. Mercy seems never to have, married. Hannah and Sarah married ; the one (wliich. does not apjiear), a 
Mr. Becke, and the other a Mr. Ch.adbourne. I cannot trace any of the married dapghiers except Mrs. Frost. Of Mr. 

BoV.cs's sons, Joseph married Mary . and died at Wells, Sept. 25, 1683. His v.ife survived him. and administered^ 

upon his estiite. They had no child. Samuel, tlie second son, married ifary Dyer, daughter of "\^ illiani Dyer of 
j Slieepscot, Me., and n'moved to Roche-^tcr, (See his Genealo'jy hereafter, Chap. II.) Tliomas, the oldest son, 
I removed from Wells. Ms., to New London, Conn., a? related in Section 11. 

I In all cases where I find his name written tij his own hand it is spelled Bolles. But copyisrs, recordinir officers, and 

oilier persons out of the family, spell it capriciously, and in many ditferent way. The blundering ingenuity of clerks 

in regard to this name is curiously illustrated by the town reconls of Ip-wich, Jfa's., and by the Regi.-tries of Deeds 

and of Probate, of Esse.t County, Mass., in regard to the I;)swich BoUc'^l-. who were somehow rela'ed to the family at 

! Wells, Maine. Upon those records and registries the name is variously written as BouLt, Bowls, Botctes, Boals, Bolls, 



JOSKl'lI HOI.LES. 1608—167?. 






Booh, I}<H>'fs, liijoles, liowaUt, and Boireh. 
bui from 175-4 no vestifre of it remains. 

From IGSo to 1754 those records contain frequent mention of the family, 

The 'Will of Joseph Bolles, Esq., of Wells, is in the words and figures following :

Thomas Holles, who. as wc liavo seen, was the -iecond cliild and fir.-^t-born son of Jo?e)ih BoUo?, Esq.. of Wells, 
Me., born Doc. 1, 1G14, wa.* iiidiieed by .loUn Winthroi), Guvonior of Connecticut, to remove tVoiA Wells to New 
London, Conn., soon after he rcaclud nianhooil. lie tii t settled in the "town plot." but in 1 G(J8 lie bouirht a house 
and hind on what was thin called " Foxen"s Hill," afterwards, and to this day, known as •' IjoUc-^'s Hill," a most beau- 
tiful slope just north of the jiresent cily of New London. It is ditlicult to lind a lovelier landscape tiiau that v.iiich 
greets tiie eye from this eliarniin!i elevation: aTul nothing can be (dea-anter to the eye of the traveller tlian the grace- 
ful accent from the banks of the Thames of the waving wooils and fertile tields of l5olle>"s Hill. 

Gov. Wintluop gave Mr. Bolles a number of young ajiple trees which he had imported from England, and from 
those trees m_v father (IJcv. ^Matthew Bolh's) the great-great-grandson of Thomas Bolles gathered fruit. Mr. Bxilles 
purchased a portion of BoUes's Hill from Owaneco, son of Uncas. and Sachem of the JMohican Indians. Mr. William 
Bolles (who descends from Thomas, through John. Jo^lula, and Hezekiah BoUcs) now living on part of this ancestral 
hill, has Owaneco's receipt for the final payment on account of this purchase, dated Oct. 14, IG'JO; signed "Owaneco, 
his niarke." The receipt is attested by two witnesses, and certified by " Kich't Christophers, Commissioner.'* 

Mr. Bolles, eontrarv to the trailition entertained by many of his descendants, was married three times: 1st, to Zip- 
poriih Wheeler of Groton, Conn., July 1, lliiiO, by whom he had three children, Mary, Joseph, and .Mm. 2d, to 
Bebecca, daughter of !Malthew Wnller of Xew London, who died without issue, Feb. 10. 1711-12. 3d, to Hopestill, 
widow of Nathaniel Ch'tppell. bv whom he had no child, and who survived him, dying in 1753. aged about 1)0. — (Miss 
CaiMiiis's Hist, of Xew London ; Xew London Jiecords.) Mr. Bolles died in New London, intestate, ilay 20, 
1727, in his 84th vear, and his grave-stone may yet be seen, where I have often visited it. in "the old burial ground." 
His three children were, Miri/. born lG7o ; Joseph, horn lG7d ; and John, born Aug. lt')77. 

On the evening of .June G. 1678, ^lary and .Joseph, with their mother Zip[iorali, were murden-d bj- a boy named 
.John Stoddard. All the legal records and proceedings in regard to these murders will be found appended hereto. 
The account of this tragedv given by Miss Caulkin-. in her excellent History of New London, is sub-taiuially correct. 
I have seen and collated a contemporaneous record of the transaction in the original Diary of Rev. Simon Brad.-trett, 
of the fir~t pari-h in New London, from which I co[iy, verbatim et literatim, some passages: "June G. jVbout sun- 
sett Mr. Thomas BuCes his (BoUes's) wife and two children were murdered here in New London by an Indian or 
Indians."' " Cut 'ometime after this God was pleased very strangely to discover the niurtherer who was a young lad 
named John vStoddard." . . . "one who has been a rebellious and disobedient wretch to his parents al his dayes, 
&c." '* The fir-t cause of suspecting him was his attempting to murther his brother in law, about a year old, or some- 
thing better. He gave him two or three blows with an axe, and, as he thought, let't him dead, informing the neighbors 
tliat some Indians done it : but u])on examination ownd and confe^^t the fact, also the other murthers." 

The Indian tir-t siisjiected of the Bolles murders was Kesuckquancli, a ^Mohican, who had been at Mr. BoUes's 
house ju-t before the murder. The record of his examination, ;ind those of Keweebhunt, Nucquiltaty and his Sipiaw, 
who fir.-t discovereil the crime, are preserved in the office of the Secretary of .State of Connecticut. I have carefully 
studied the originals, and also the examination, confession, indictment, ttc. of young Stoddard, tlie real murderer, some 
of <vliich in part, and some of which in full. I juhjoin hereto. Stoddard in his confession says that he came to 3Ir. 
BoUes's house that evening (.June G, 1G78) his mother and step-father living near by, — asked ^Mr^. Bolles for a night's 
lodging, and was refu-ed. "Then he ownetli," says the confession, " that he drew the latch and came into the house, 
and took an axe that stood by the wall, and strooke the said ^Mrs. Bowles on the head (as she satt on the stoole nei>re 
y« Bedde's feete, with the child in her lap.) with which blow she fell on the flore, (by some venyson that lay there). 
Then he strooke her another blow on the head; then he strooke the girl on the head as she stood by the dore, and 
then strooke the little bov on the head, &c." . . . "when he went from the house to the highway homewards." 

Keweebiiunt, Nucquiltaty and his squaw, state that they came to the house just after dark, and found Mrs. Bolles 
and one child dead on the floor, and the other child wounded and gasping on the threshold. They hurried into town 
to give the alarm. 

At the Hartiord Court. October, 1078, Stoddard was indicted, tried and convicted of the murder of Mrs. Bolles and 
her two children. He was sentenced to death, and was hung "on the 0"' day of October, after the lecture.'' 

Mr. Bolles was much employed in town affairs, and tor nearly twenty years was in the Commission of the Peace. — 
(Caidliiis. 3C.S-9.J He was of the "standing order" in religion, and educated .Tohn. his only surviving chiM, "in the 
rresbyterian way." — ( See .Tohn Bolhs's "True Liberty of Consrienee. Sfc," p. 2').) In 1 073, a considerable betjuest 
was made to New London by Knbert Bartlett, for the education of children. The fii-st Bartlett Committee chosen by 
the town to manage this property wiis elected in 1C'J8, and Mr. Bolles was fir.--t on the list. — ( <.\inlkins. 3'J7-8.j 

JI.-. BoUes's house stoo I a little south of the stone hou-e now (or recently j owned by Mr. Lyman Allen. A couple 
of miles north of that spot is B(dles's Cove, opening into the Tliames. In the Patent of New London, san.^tioned by 
the Governor and Council, Oct. 14, 17iJ4, Thom:Ls Bulles is named as one of the grantees of land conveyed "by cer- 
tain Acts and Grants passed in General Assembly." 

Mr. Bolles, as I have said, died without 1727. and his son .John, sole survivor of the Stoddard murder, 
inherited ids propert}' and name. In signing iiis name iSIr. Thomas Bolles, likc^his father Joseph, alway.s spelled it 
BoUps, and <o it is insciibcd upon his grave-stone. 

I now complete this .Section by presenting loine documents which contain true records, and others which present 
imperfect traditions anil recollections, concerning matters connecltd with Bolles. The following letter is from

Jonx A. E^q. Sir: In roin[)li:inco wiili vour (lirt-clioii I have prfpaicd and lit'rewitli sonJ to you 
an otVioe copy of the Uocord in Stollicr'.s ^.Sitnidi-r".-; or Sioddai'd's) c.i>f'. Since receivinj,' your letter, I have made 
t'uillier search ot' the tiles of the early Conrl~, and find several dipositions and exaininaiiuns made in this ca~e. It 
appears that su.-pieion of the minders lirst rested on Suekquaneh and Kewci-ljliunt. two Mohejran Indian*, who \v!>re 
proved to have been at ]\Ir. Bowie's lionse not loiin; belbre the murder of his wife ami children. These Indians 
were arre-;ted and imprisoned. Suhseiiuently the nuirdi r of a brother of tkis John Slodder, and the su-picion attueii- 
ing to the latter ot' beini the perpetrator of the crime, led the anthorities to .-u?pect his participation in the murder of 
Mrs. Bowles. On beimi examined, he confessed the crime. The tiles eoiitaln the examination of K'Si'ilrpiiiiich (or 
Suckqnanch) and KrirecOJudtf ; the testimony of ^ iickf/iiiftiiti/ (a Mohetrau) and his .-quaw, who were the tirst to dis- 
cover the bodies of ^Irs. B. and the children, on visiting the house of Thoiaias B. on the evening after the nnirder, 
(June t), 1G78I; the examination of John Stockier, himself — aged about 10 years — in which he confesses having com- 
mitted the several crimes laid to his charge : two subsci^nent examinations, touching points not suiliciently explained 
in his first; a " Certiticate concerning John Stodder's wicked course," i'roni vitree persons who had known liim "from 
his beginning," — "that he had alwayes bin a most terrible wicked boy, very much indicted to curse and sware bitter 
oathcs and likewi-e to lie and steale," &e. ; and finally, a formal confession made by Slodder before Edw'' Palmes and 
James Avery, Comm". at New London, from which I extract all that relates to the murder of the Bowles fainilv. 

"The aboues'' .John Stother being examined about the death of Jlrs. Bowies and her children, did .-trongly deny to 
Jlr. Bradstreet that hee ever was in the house, but now doth freely owne tlial bee is the person which did the mur- 
ther, declareing that he came that evening with an intent to lodge tliere; but Mrs. Bowles denied him liberty to lodge 
there and thrust him out of doores, strickeing him w''' her hand. Then hee >Jie said Stother owneth that he drew the

For J. P. C. Matoek, Secretari/ of State. 

I have myself taken notes of the examinations of Kesuckquanch and others, from the files in the Secretary's otlice, 
and they are as follows : 

1. Examination of Kesuckquancii. "I had been himting that d.jy — left my gun at TVhecler's — called at 
Mr. BoUes's and demanded a pint of liquor, which Keweebhunt said Mr. U. would give me if I went there. Mrs. B. 

tj i replied she had no licpior in the house, neither did she use to sell liquors. TJien went to Thos. Williams's house and 
sold him a quarter of Veui>on for a ([uart of rum. As I came back, met Xeweebhunt about sunset or a little after, 
half way between Thos. AV.'s and Mr. B.'s house — ran all the way to town — saw no Indians till I came into town to 
the Company between IMr. Wheeler's and Mr. Lattimore's. They gave me food. When I was done eating, the 
alarm was given that 3Lrs. B. and her children were killed." When lirst seized in the night, Kesuckquanch said, 
" What is the matter you lay hold of tne ? Is Thos. BoUes's wife and cialdren dead ?" Being asked why he so 
said, he gave no reason. Being asked whether he did not know who killed ihe woman and children, he answerid he 
'• did not certainly know, but the old man might do it." Mr. Bolles was abs*-nt from home at the time of the murders. 
He was then in his o4th year. Could Kesuckf(uanch have referred to him sls '"the old man?" 

2. Examination of Keweebhunt. " I killed a deer — biougiit part of it to one Perce's for whom two Indians 
were making a hedge — sun 2.^ hours high. Was at Bolles's, sun half an Iic»ur high, with three parts of deer — left a 
half with her — she and her children were then well; then went with the other quarter to Thos. Williams's; on the 
way met Kesuckquanch coming in the path toward Bolles's house; sold luy venison, and went with Xucquittaty and 
his squa-v to Mr. Bolles's near dark — found the door open — went in — found a child making a noise like snoring on i 
the floor — thought it was asleep — tried to wake it — could not ; went to the fire — stirred up the fire, and made a 
light — then saw the child was wounded and gasping, and Mrs. Bolles with another child lay dead on the floor; 
on which sight I stood trembling ancl knew not what to do. Xucquittaty said "for my part I will go to town, and 
inform what 1 find." (This examination was before Major Treat.) 

3. Examination of Xucquitattv. Jane T'^, declared that yesterday he and his squaw were at Thos. Will- 
iams's. About sunset, or a little after, Kesuckquanch came there with a quarter of venison, and sold it for a quart of 
rum. K. went away with the rum ; said he would go to town. I saw no wtaipon. A while afterwards, Kcweebhunt 
came with venison to W.'s and sold it for rum to Thos. .Jones's wife. It bein"! night, the people hastened me and my 
wife away. Coming towards the town Kcweebhunt said lie wo'^ call at his friend Mr. Bolles's house — and they all 
went together — found door open — and a child wounded and gapping, lying down on the threshold — it was dark — I 
called to Keweebhunt to make a light — I went not into the house. The iiglit being made, saw Mrs. B. and one child 
killed, and one child wounded and ga-ping. ily squaw w;is afraid and desired me to get away — I answered I would 
go and inform authijrity thereof. We all came towards town — heard guns — squaw aliaid, and said go not in the path 
lest you be killed — lell the path with squaw, but Keweebhunt said he would keep on in it and inform. Being asked

The facts which I have stated in regard to Mr. Thomas Bolles are matters of public record, and of their acuracy 
there can be no doubt. I now copy a statement made to ray uncle, the venerable Rev. Augustus Bolles ot Colches;er, 
Conn., by a grandson of Thomas ' Bolles, at the age of 8'j. when his memory seemed clear and exact. My uncle 
wrote it down verbatim, and save it to me some years afterwards. It is a curious mixture of truth and error.^ The 
erroneous statements are those printed in italics. The narrator was Mr. Samuel Bolles, the 1-tth child A)t John 
BoUes, tiic infant son of Tiiomas rel'erred to in the Statement. Mr. Samuel Bolles. as will appear hereafter, was born 
when John Bolles his father was a very old man, and his -tatement as to the murder was made more than one hun- 
dred and sixty years after the crime was committed. He lived to be almost 'J'J years old, and was known to the 
BoUeses of New London :is •" Sam uncie." 


" T7iere came three brothers from Englnnd. in what year is^not known. Th-y landed below Boston ; not know.i at 
what place ; but soon f mind their way to Boston, where one died without issue. One settled at Wells, in Maine, and thi 
other, Mr. Thomas Bolles. came to settle in New London, at the solicitation of Mr. Winthrop, at that time Governor 
of Connecticut, who gave him ten young apple trees, which Jlr. Bolles set out near what is now the northea-t part of

two men on the way, one of wiiom went with him to the house, the other to the town. The result was, he 
charged with the murder, and confessed it. He was then charged with the murder of Mrs. Bolles and confessed the

Bolles was killed June G. 1078, and that John was "41 years of age in -Vug. 1718." and must therefore have been 
born hi Aug. 1G77, and not in "Aug. or Sept. 1C76." of "Sam Uncle's" mistakes have been perpetuated in

I have his autn2rrai)h family record, containing the names of the first eleven of these children, his own age, and 
the following entrv : "."Sly ^Mother was murdered the sixth day of the fourth" (month) " 1G78." At the age of j 
thirty he became dissati;lied with the tenets of the Pre.-byterian Church, in which he liad been educated. That | 
church was the oidy one recognized by law. Its members composed "the standing order," and from the founda- ! 
tion of the Colony imtil the adoption of a State Constitution and the principle of reliiiious toleration in ISlJi, every i 
person in Connecticut, whatever his creed, was compelled by law to b'dong to. or pay taxes for the support of ''the , 
standing order." It was as complete an '• EstablL-hment " as is the " Est;ibli,-hed Church of England." 3Ir. , 
Bolles became a Seventh-day Baptist, and was immer-cd by John Rogers, the elder. AVell educated, familiar ' 
with the Biblr, independent in fortune, earne.-t in his convictions, and of a pro-elyting spirit, bold and tijnd of dis- 
cussion, Mr. BoUf-s eng.'iged very actively in polemical controveivy, and wrote a;id publi-hed many books and | 
pamphlets, some of which yet extant prove him to have been, as Miss Caulkin?, the historian jof Ni:w London, ' 
describes him, "fluent with the pen and adroit in argument."

TiT T 























From one of his "books" in my possession it appears tliai liis escape when liis mother and lier two other chil- 
dren were murdered by Sioddard.'and ids deliveraiiee I'roni other imudnent perils, " When," to use his own words, 
"there was but a hair"'s bieadth between mo ami death," made a deep im[u-ession on his nund, and made him li;el 
that God had spared him tor some special work. This belief is exjiresscd in some homely verses, limiyan-like in 
sound, which his grand dau<_'iiter, .Mrs. Berg, (dau. of Enoch liolles,; quoted to m& in ISGl, from one of hi.s 
•'books," whose title she could -not remember: — 

" Kind rctifler, here I offer thcc a book, 

Pesiriug thee therein iu love to look; 

'Tis for no wisdom, nor no college phrase 

That I bestow this book, thereby to praise. 

I forruerly JiJ lose a teuJer mother; 

I also haii a sister and a brother; 

My mother she was murdered with the rest. 

And I, a babe, found sucking at her breast: 
Yet was my life preserved by God's Almighty hand. 
Who since has called me forth for his great truth to stand." 

Under the spur of this conviction he devoted himself to the great cause of religious freedom, encountering op[)0- 
sition and per-ecution, and suffering tines, imprisonments and beating with many stripes. I have befure me a copy 
of the record of proceedings in .July, 172.J, before Joseph Backus. Esq., a niagi.-trate of Norwich. Conn., against 
Andrew Davis, John Bollcv-, and his son, Joseph BoUes, (a young man of --'.J years.) John Kogers, (the younger,) 
Sarah Culver and others, eharged with Sal)bath-bre:ikitig; by which it appears that for going on Sunday from 
Groton and New London to attend Baptist worship iu Lebanon, they were arrested on Sunday, impri-oned till the 
next day and then heavily fined, the sentence being that if tine and eo^ts were not paid, they should be flogged on 
the bare back for non-payment of line, and then lie in jail till payment of costs. As none of thein wotdd pay, they 
were all flogged, the woman as well as the men — John Bolles receiving fifteen stripes — and each of the others ten. 
According to the statement of one of the sufferers, Mary Mann of Lebanon wished to be immersed, and api)lied to I 
I John Kogers. (the younger.) and his Society for baptism. Notice was publicly posted some weeks beforehand thai 
on a certain ^fondav, Julv 2(j, 1725, she would be bajitized and tiiat a religious meeting would be held in Lebanon 
on Sundav, Julv '2'), ''the d;iy" (says Rogers) ''on which we usually meet, as well as the rest of our Neighbors." 
AYhen the Sunday came, a company of Bajitists. men and women, from Groton and New London, set out for Leb- 
anon by the county road which led through Norwich. The passage through Norwich was so timed a-, not to inter- 
fere \vith the hours of public worship. After they had passed through the village they were pursued and stopjied. 
brought back to Norwich, imprisoned until 3Ionday. and tiien tried, convicted and sentenced for Sabliath-breaking. 
It must be added that the woman who was thus stripped and tlogged was pregnant at the time, and that the magis- 
trate who ordered the whipping stood by and witnessed the execution of his sentence. This outrage much 
talked of throughout New England, and led to the publication of divers proclamations and pamphlets. Deputy 
Governor Jenks of Rhode Lland, the following January, having obtained a copy of the proceedings against 
Davis, ordered it to be publicly posted in Providence to show the people of Rhode I-land "what may be expected 
from a Presbyterian Government," and appended to it an indignant ollicial proclamation. I copy the entire hand- 
bill :— 

"Here folio weth a Copy of a Record of the proceedings of a Justice's Court, held in Norwich in July last, with 
one of John Rogers his" (Rogers's) " brethren, who, together with him and several otiiers, I am informed were 
goi:ig on the First Day of the AVeek from New London and Groton to a religious meeting at Lebanon, in order to 
Baptise, or see a person Baptised, &c-, and were all appreliended as Malefactors and unmercifully whipped.

Mr. Justice Backus, in a pamphlet of 32 pp.. endeavored, quite unsnccessfuilv, to justifv or palliate his crneltv, 
and was answered by EoLrers wiiji becominir severity. As I read these several documents I am constrained to 
wonder that such ouiraiies could have been eillier inflicted or endured. There seems to be a son of poetical justice 
in the fact tliat Justice Backup's grandson, a cliild of eigiiteen months at the date of this tloggin", became himself a 
Baptist preacher, and the historian of the Bajni-Is. 

Mr. Bollcs sutlered many otlier hard^liips at tlie liand of the law, some of whrch he has commemorated in his 
"books." I Lave a volume containing tliree of his productions, viz.: 1. "A Messasre to the General Court at I 
Boston, ;May, 1754." 2. A tract entitled (in part) "True liberty of Conscience is in bondage to no flesh, >ie." I 
3. A ■' Reply to Jacob Joluiion's Answer to my b<x)ke. lic. by John Bolles." In one of these he says, " To mv i 
knowledge was taken from a man. only for the co?t of a Justice's Court, and Court cliarge of whippinL' Isim, for ^ 
breach of Sabdatii. (so called,} a mare worth a laniJred poruids. and nothing returned; and this is known by us i 
yet living, to have been the general [iractiee in Connecticut." — (-True LiUriij.'' Ac. p. 'JS.j Mr. Bollcs. doubtless. I 
was that " nicin." Another of his "books" in my po.-session is. "A Brief Account of Persecutions in Boston and I 
Connecticut Governments,'' (175S). Another, dated from "New London, tlie eleventh of tiie seventh month, I 
172S," (jMarch being then the first month of the year.) is a pamphlet conraiuine Jolin Bolles's Apjilication "to the l 
General Court hoKlen at IS'ew Haven the 10th of the ^th monili. 172S." inforniinrr that honorable bodv "in all tiie I 
Honour and submi-.-ive obedience that God requires nie to show unto vou. kte.." that lie had examiued the Confes- i 
sion of Faitii established by them, and f'ound therein "Principles that seem not to be ])roved by the Scriptures 
tlicre quoted," and had drawn up some Objections thereto, and "taken a journey for no otlier eiid but to deliver 
them to one of the Elders in each" -'County in this Colony of Conneetieui." "to be bv him delivered to their 
several Associations, desiring them to peruse tliem and answer them." &c. ; a copy of which Objections is set out 
in the Application, .and requesting the General Court to call a general Association for the consideration of these 
Objections. In tliis pamphlet he mentions various instances of cruel persecution to which he and his friends had 
been subjected. He eiids the "book" with these words: — " But we, on our parts, have h;id the witness of a "-ood 
Conscience towards God in all our Sufferings, and Loss of all these Things, and do niake it our Care to live inof- 
fensively towards all men. except in the ca>e of Daniel, Chap. G. A'erse .5. And whether this be not oppres^iii'^ 
and afflicting them that have no Power to help ihem::clve5 for Conscience sake, let God be judce. Prav peruse 
what is above written, and let it have a due Sense upon your J\Iinds ; and so act and do in all the Paniculars 
above mentioned, as you may have Confidence and Boldness to hold U]) your Heads bef'ore the Great, and Terrible, 
and Righteous Judge of all the Earth, wlien he shall come with ins mitrhty Angels in fiamin" Fire, lakiiic Ven- 
geance on them that know not God, and that obey not the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ." 

I have another of his "books'' called " Good itfus from a Far Country," whose areument is to prove that the 
Civil Government "have no Authority t'rom God to .Judge in Cases of Conscience;" to which is added "An An- 
swer to an Election Sermon preached by Nathaniel PZells." This double pamphlet was printed at Newport. E. I., 
1749. Another of his works in my possession, "printed for Joseph Bolles. 17J7," discourses " concerninir the 
Christian Saljbath," and advocates the seventh day tenet. Ho pu'tli.-hed many other "books," as he loved to. call 
them; and from 170.S to 1754 liardly a year elapsed without his thus assailing the abuses of the established church, 
and vindicating the great princi[>le of "soui-libeny." Once a year, as a general rule, he mounted his hor-e. with 
saddle bags stutfed full of "books," and rode from Co'itity to County chaileniring di-cussion, invitin:r the "Presbv- 
terian Elders '' to meet him. nian-f'a.-hion, in argument, or confers and abandon their errors. " But,'"^ savs he. in one 
of his "book-," "they disregarded my re<;ue-t." He even made a piigrimaie to Boston, Mass.. in 1754, to move 
the General Court of ^lasraehusetts in this behalf, as he had often en<ieavored to move the Connecticut LcisLa- 
ture. This la-t exploit, a horseback ride of 200 miles in his 77th year, may be regarded as a tit climax to a Ion" 
life of zealous etfort in tlie oau-<.' of truth. 

From Mr. Bolles's Application to the General Court I copy these passages: — "And as he (.John Rogers) saith 
hitherto, so may we say now. Fathers taken from their "SVives and Children, witiiout any Regard to Di.-tance of 
Place, or Length of Time. Sometimes Fatliers and Mothers both taken and kept in Prison, leaving their Father- 
less and ^lotherless Children to go mournint: about the streets. 

"AVhen a poor in:in hath had but one 31ilch Cow for his Families Comfort, it hath been taken awav; or when 
he hath had only a -tmall Beast to kill for his family, it hath been taken fiom him. to answer a fine for :roinr: to a

'• Yea. Fourscore and oild Sheep have been taken from a !Man, being .all his Flock ; a Team taken from the ' 
Plow, with all its Furniluri'. and led away. But I am not now about giving a particular Account, for it would \ 
contain a IJook of a largo Volume, to relate all that hath been taken from u.=, and a.s unreasonable and boundless | 
as these; besides the Cruelties inflicted on oiu' Bodies, and many and long Impri^'omnents, of which I .'•hall 
mention one Instance of a Woman when she was condemned by a Judge in a Case of Conscience : Because she 
stopped her Eais, and would not hearken to his Sentence, as not belonging to him to judge in such Cases, but with 
a cheerful Spirit ^ang Praises to God, and then turned to the Judge and said. That if he went on persecuting 
God's People, (jod"s Judgments would come upon him or his. Whereu[)on said Judge condemned her to Prison, : 
where, after further Detonuination. she was re(|iiired to remain till she should pay the Charge of her Prosecution, 
so called, and there continued .-ix 3Ionths, till CJod made way by moving the Hearts of the People with Conipas- j 
sioa for her Diliverance, by seeing her Affliction: She being not oidy locked up in Prison, but also a high boarded ; 
Yard round the Prison, locked also, and the Prison-Keeper living near half a mile from the Prison, it being an I 
extream cold "Winter, and in the Heighth of it. she miscarried, being without any Help, nor coidd call for any, her 1 
Husband living about a mile and a half from the Prison, and was not suft'ered to come to her; As if God suffered i 
such Things to be done, to lay Conviction before all Faces. But after her Kelease, she was carried liome on her i 
Bed in a Cart, and after some Time she was, thro' God's Goodness restored to Health again." — (Pp- 14-17.^ I 

My edition of Mr. lioUcs's "True Liberty of Conscience" has lost its title page, but Irom many passages therein ; 
it is manifest that the date must be later than 175G. At p. 103. he ret'ers to his having gone '"to the Genera! i 
Court at Hartford, and al>o to the General Court at Boston," "in the year 1754;" and says, "1 have published \ 
three treatises already, touching these things; but there has been no answer made to any; and this is the fourth." ! 
I quote al^o. in full, the passage from this little volume which relates to Mr. Bolles's conversion. He say.s, p. 25, , 
'• But before I go any further, I think it not ami.-s to give some account of my own life from my infancy, and of ! 
God's dealing towards me ; as David saith, Psal. Cfi, IG. That was his exiierience of Giod's goodness towards j 
him. And as to myself, my father lived about a mile out of New London town ; and my mother wa^ at home i 
with only three little children, I being the youngest, (about 10 months old.) she with the other two were murdered ' 
by a youth .about 10 vcars of age, who was afterwards executed at Hartlbrd; and I was found, (as was said.) at my ' 
dead mother's breast. And since in the course of my life God hath preserved me out of many eminent dangers, | 
when there was but a hair's breadth between me and death, which I have a particular remembrance of to this day ; I 
and the most of tliem by water. And I was .brought up in the Presbyterian way till I was about thirty years old, : 
and had four or five children, but baptised none; for reading the Scriptures, and as my age gave me understand- | 
ing to consider what I read, it aiijieared to me by the .Scriptures that we must first believe before we were bap- ' 
tised. and in our baptism we must be buried in water. And now, living to this age in the neglect of baptism, my \ 
conscience accused me. so that I read the Scriptures that I might be fully informed what was for me to do. And \ 
the more I read them I was confirmed in my first belief, and accordingly was baptised by John Rogers, a Baptist I 
teacher. And now. as I had made a profession thus far, and going on in my Christian juogress, I found no com- I 
mand in Scripture for the first day Sabbath; and therefore began to work upon it. not thinking that the civil j 
authoritv would rise up against me. For tho' I was baptised by said Rogers, and joined in fellowshiji with that i 
people that had suffered much for conscience sake, by Whipping, imprisoning, .and setting in the stocks, and loss of | 
goods, and particularly for working on the first day of the week, yet of late they had not been mole-ted as at the first, \ 
though they work't as freely, and openly: but I was soon presented" (by the grand jury) "and brought before the ' 
authority, and fiiuil, and then they would let me alone till after three first-days, and then send for me. and fine. me. , 
for three days together. And now as the battle grew hotter, God gave me more courage, and I gre^^*stronger and | 
stronger, that what was said of Israel under the oppression of Pharaoh, and the Egyptians, was very lively whh ] 
me, (Exod. 1, 12,) and also that of the house of Saul .and David, (2 Sam., 3, 1,) and so it proved between me j 
and the Aiuhority. for the consolation that I injoyed, set me over the loss of my goods," . . . '"for God gave I 
me such a chearfid spirit in this warfare, that when I had not the knowledge that the grand-jury man saw me at ! 
work on said day. I would inform against myself before witness, till they gave out, and let me plow, and cart, and 
do whatsoever I have occasion to this day." — (Pp- 25-6-7-8.^ | 

His study of the New Testament convinced him that slaverj- is unchristian, and he manumitted .all Ids slaves; 
providing generously for their support, and watching, all his life long, over their welfare. It is no extravagant j 
eulogy to say that .John Bolks was a great and a good man: and I deem it alike strange and discreditable to his 
immediate descendants, that no monument marks his grave and no man knows where he is buried. It is worthy j 
of notice, as indicating the extn'.ordinary vigor and energy of the man and of tlie constitution which he tran.-mit- 
ted to bis children, that nearly all of them reached a great old age; that he himself died in his 90th year; that 
the four last of his fourteen children were born after he was CO years of .age ; .Samuel, (".Sam Uncle,") the 
fourteenth and last, born w lien the father was 67, altaineil to almost 99 ye.ars ; and that Sanmel's son John died at 
the age of 90. It wouhl be ditlicult to find a more remarkable longevity of four successive generations than this 
of Thomas, 84; John, 90; .Satnnei, 99; and John, 90 ; u])wards of 3G0 years. A ijf . 

To the genealogy of this long-lived race I now proceed, promising to make my notices /7 / y'J. //

JosEril EoLLES, the first child of .John Eolle? and Sainh Ed;^ccomln\ burn in Now Loinldii. Conn., Jlnrcli 
1, 1701, ;>ml ilieJ tliiro July, I78J, in lii~ SolU year. Ho was a fanner, ami i)oi-;uioiiallv I find his nanii' as 
publislier on tlie title pajre of his fathei's and of .John IJogi-i-s's jianiphlct-;. Ho was a IIn<;iTino, (Ivoyc-rine 
Baptist, or Quaker,) aiul like his father sull'ei'ed persecutions, and rejoieed in them, for eon-cie:u-e's Ho 
was one of the number whipped at Norwich in 172d, by order of Ju.-tice Uackus, for violating llie Sabbath by 
going to a Baptist religious meeting. 

His wife's Christian name was INIartha, but the family name, and the date of marriage, I cannot ascertain. 
Indeed, as to the marriage, the public records would contain no evidence, inasmuch as !Mr. .Joseph ]]olles wfis 
one of those extreme Kogerines who, regarding marriage as a. religious covenant, and not a civil contract, 
deemed it a sin to conform to the requirements of what he considered as an unjust law. There is a tradition in 
the family that Governor Saltonstall. (Uev. Gurdon Saltonstall of New Loudon.) wlio had a high regard for 
Mr. and ^Irs. Bollcs. contrived to marry them without their suspecting it. The story has been told of so many 
that I doubt its authenticity, though it is not improbable, and is too good to be lost. It is said tliat after Mr. 
and Mrs. B. had had one or two children, and had been threatened by "Some rude fellows of the baser sort" 
with prosecution, the Governor one day invited himself to dine with friends .Joseph and ^Nlanha. As the dinner 
went on, " Friend Gurdon," in easy conversation, verv' adroitly led both !Mr. and !Mrs. 15. severally to declare 
that they had taken each other as man and wile in a life long union, and regarded themselves bound by the 
marriage covenant before God and man. As 3Irs. B. assented to her husband's declaration, with her smiling 
" Yea, yea," the Governor rose to his feet and spreatling out his hands exclaimed, " By virtue of my otlice as 
civil magistrate, and as minister of God, I deelai'e you lawful man and wife 1" "Ah, friend Guidon," said Jo.-eph, 
" thou art a cunning creature !" 

Mr. and Mrs. Bolles had tive children, viz. : 1. Joseph; 2. Thanl.fvl ; '.i. Saroh ; 4. Martha; 5. Zipporah. 
Tlioidfid married her cousin .John. — (See Sect. V.J Samh, born Dee. 0, 17o0; married John Ilender.-on. 
Marthit. born Dec. 01, 1738. Zipporah, born May 9, 1741. Of ihe three last I have no further knowledge.

and the Civil Authority took little thought, except to persecute, and made little record, except of pro:-i-cu- 
tioiis and convictions. He married Deborah Rogers, daughter of Samuel Rogei.:, and sister of that .John

Euxice Bolles. olden child of James and Eunice Bolles, was killed July 21, 178C, when only six

'•The murdered child was found about 10 A. M., on the Norwich roail, two or three miles from to>vt]. 
She lay under a wtdl. heavy stones from which had Ijeen thrown down upon her body. After a day 
or two su-picion was directed to the Indian girl — Hannah Oc-cu-i-h — a Fequod, IciS than 13 years 
old — who lived with a widow woman near by. On examination she confessed the crime. It was .a 
case of cruel and malicious murder, growing out of a di.-putc that occurred in a strawberry field a lew 
days before. The fierce young savage, nursing her wrath, and watching an opportunity for revenge, 
at length came upon her victim, on her way to school alone, and after coaxing and alluring her into a 
wood, fell upon her, and beat her to death. The only alleviating circuni.-tanoes in this ca.-e were the

served during the v,i\T of the Revolution on board the armed vessels of Connecticut, and in privateers,

Stephen' Bolle:', only child of the last above-named Samuel Bolles, was boiii in New London, Conn., 
in 1763. His trade was that of saddler, lie m. Susan Dunton, Jan. 1, 1787, and removed to Hartford, 
Conn., where he died. April 1, 1841. She d. July 31, 1849. They had eleven children, viz.: 1. Isaac; 
2. Stephen; 3. Siismi ; 4. Frederick!).; 5. William; 6. Fanny; 7. Edwin; 8. Charles; 9. Mary; 
10. Franllin ; and 11. Thomas. 

Mr. Bolles owned considerable land in the city of New London. In 1786, Union Street war-, opened 
through his land, and he himself laid out and opened Jlasonic Street at the same time. Part of his citv 
land went by the name of " Bolles's Hill." but must not be confounded with Bolles's, sometimes called 
Quaker, Hill, nortli of the city, on which our aneotur, Thomas Bolies, settled, as stated in .Sect. IL Miss 
Caulkins, in her History of New London, states that the Cunjrregational Society, abandoniu'-' the old 
Saltonstall meeting-house, began to build a new house in 178o, in a more central and accessible site, on 
Stephen Bolles's land (15olles's Hill) having bougiit a lot of Mr. Bolles, for £7.'» ; Sir. Bolles throwinir in 
£25 of this amount as his contribution towards tlie church. — (Caulkins, 591, G27.J It is remarkable 
the first sermon preached in this new church was that occasioned by the murder of little Eunice Boiler 
by the Indian girl Hannah Oc-cu-ish, Dec. 20, 1786, as already related in Sect. IV. 

The children of Stephen Bolles were born, &c., as follows : 

ISAAC BOLLES, 1787—1814. 



Isaac Bolles, first child of Stephen and Susan Bolles, b. Oct. 9, 1787. He was by trade a paper 
stainer, and lived anil died in Hartford, Conn. He married Deidamia Bowles, daughter of Jolin 
Bowles (one of the Koxburj-, Mass., family of Bowleses) Oct. 13, 1811 ; had two children. Isaac N. 
and Ce/t'a, and died, Oct. 15, 1814. His widow afterwards married Philemon Canficld of Haitford, 

Isaac Xfwton Bolles, first child of Isaac and Deidamia Bolles, was bom Oct. 13, 1812, and is a 
printer in Ilartlbrd, Conn. 

Celia Bolles, second child of Isaac and Deidamia Bolles, was bom June 5, 1814; m. Kichard Kirk- 
ham, April 15, 1835, and d. April, 1836. 


This interm.irriage of Isa-ic Bolles and Deidamia Bowles is the only instance I know of a marriage 
connection between these two branches of the old English family of Bolles. By the kindness of J. 
"Wingate ThoriUon, Escp, of Boston, Mass., I am enabled to give the following genealogical sketch of 
the Roxbury Bowleses: — 

.JOHN ilO^V'LIiS, of England, was a member of the Massachusetts Company and gave them £25, 
in Jlarch, 1029. He was in Roxbury as early as 1640. lie was a founder of the Grammar School; 
Representative; Member of the Artillery C'om[)any, 1645; and Elder of the Church. He was thrice 

married, viz., 1, to Dorothy ; 2, to Elizabeth Heath, dau, of Elder Isaac Heath of Roxbury; 3, 

to "Widow Sarah Cliickering. He had four cbildnti, Elizabeth. I-aac, John, Jr., and Mary, 

JoH.v, Ji:., wa-i born 1653 ; grad. at Camliridge. 1671 ; studied theology and became a minister; m. 
Nov. 1681, Sarah, gr. dau. of the Apostle t;iiot. :uid of Thomas Willett, first mayor of New York: he 
was frequently Representative from Roxbury, ami in 1690, Speaker of the ilou.-e of Representa- 
tives; d. 1691, leaving only one child, viz.: 

John Bij\vr.i;s, 3d, who was born March, 1685; grad. at Cambridge, 1702; was a leading citiz<?n 
of Roxbury, .Ju-tiec of rhe Peace, Jlajor, and Representative. He was twice married, viz., 1st, to 
Lydia Chetkley ; 2d, to Frances White. He d. March 2», 1737. His children were — Mary, 1709; 
John; .Samu<l W., 1715; Joshua, 1722; Isaac. 1721. 

JosiiL-A liiMVLES, .-xbovc-naraed, b. 1722; d. 1794; m. Mary, dau. of Ralph Ilartt of Boston, and 
became the father of Ralph Hartt Bowles, 1757; of William ; 'and of Samuel Bowles, 1762.

William Bowles, the other son of Joshua, was a master mariner; was with Cnpt. Gray when he

arrow. lie was father of Joun Bowles of Hartford ^b. March 2, 17G9) "whose dau. Deidami.i m.

tlie idea that it was wicked to attempt by the use of medicine to cure disease. This notion cost him his lift, for 
being accidentally jwisoned by handling ivy, or other similar substance, lie refused all medical treatment, and so 
died. I state these facts partly on the authority of Jliiii/iun's '•Puritan Settlers, S^c," and partly on the author-

ENOCH BOLLES, 1715-1800. 




Enoch Bolles, ninth child of John Bolles and Sarah Edgecombe, was bom in New London, Conn., Oct. 
20, 1715, where he resided until his death, Dec. 3, 1800. He was a saddler, harness-maker, an<l farmer, living 
on Bolles Hill,^ and devoutly adhering to the tenets of the Rogerine Quakers — in religious matters — though 
free from all of their otiensive and Ishmaeliti-h peculiarities of conduct. He inherited none of the proselyting 
ze:al of John Bolles, his father, but was an example of a peace-loving, quiet, exemplary chri-tian. He wa^ 
twice married, l^t to Hannah Moore, Nov. 2. 1738, by whom he had ten children, and'who died ilarch 18, 
1765 ; and 2d, to widow Lucy Wheeler, daughter of Charles Thompson, who bore him four children, all girls, 
survived him, and dieil 3Iarch 21, 1812. I have his aulograi>li family record. One of his sons became a Bap- 
tist clergyman, one of thern a Methodist class leader, and four of them Baptist deacons. As already stated, 
Mr. Bolles's first wife w.xs Hannah Moore. Her two niece-, Mirgaret M,ore and Susannah M<ore. married, 
the one Samuel Bolles, Enoch's brother, and the other David Bolles, Enoch's son, so that the children of David 
Bolles were iloubI\- indehti.-d to the Moore blood. The Moores were a remai-kably long-lived nice, and were 
distinguished by extraordiiiary vigor ot' both body and mind.

and usefulness. He ni. twice, 1st, Lydia Taber of New London, by whom he had nine cliildren, and who

I will quote a few interestin,:j passages concerning Deacon John Bolles. from Dr. TurnbuU's " Mkmoi:ials 
OF THE FiiiST Baptist Ciili:ch. Haktfoi!d, C'o-NX.." which were read by Dr. T. as sermons .ifler the 
dedication of the new church edifice, May, 18-30: 

"Tiiere was no man, perhaps, to whom our church, in tlic early jieriod of its. history was more indebted 
than John Bolles. He was every way a remarkable man; not, indeed, that he possessed extraordinary 
powers of mind, or was fitted, by any splendid ac<iuiremeiit, to attract the admiration of the world; but he 
exhibited a rare combination of Christian gifts and graces. He was a Nathanael indeed, in whom there was 
no guile. And yet. shrewd beyond mo>t men, he never failed to command the respect of his aciiuaintances. 
Everybody loved him. Decided in liis ]>rinciples, his soul overflowed with love and charity. Easy, nimble, 
cheerful, he was ready to every good word and work. He lived for others. The young, especially, loved 
him. Tiie ageil, ami abo^e all. the poor, hailed him as their friend. He was perpetually uevi:-ing soiuetliing 
for the benefit of tlie church, or the good of souls. 

How or when lie wa.> converted, he could not tell. His parents were pious, and had brought him up iu 
the fear of Ciod. and in early lite, he had given his heart to Christ ; but all he could say about it was that 
God had been gracious to him, and as he hoped, brought him into his fold. On the relation of hi.s experi- 
ence before the church in Sutneld, the brethren, on this very account, hesitated to receive him; but the 
pastor, Rev. John Ha-tings, shrewdly i-emarked, that it was evident that Mr. Bolles icas in the way. and that 
this iciis more importunt tltua the question, when or hij whut means he got in to it ; upon which they unani- 
mously received him. He was very hajipy in his connection with the church in Suflield. The members 
were all his friends. He would often start from Hartford at midnight, and arrive in .Sulliehl at carh" dawn 
on Sabbath morning, when they were making their tires, and sur|>rise them by his pleasant salutation. After 
breakfa-t, and family praynr, all hands woidd go to church together. Of cenrse, he was efpially at home 
with the church in Hartibrd, and spent nuich of his time in visiting, especially the poor of tlie flock. He 
had a kin<l word and .a ready hand for every one. One severe winter, a fearful snow storm had raised the 
roads to.a level willi the tops of the fences. A certain widow Burnham lived all alone just on the outer 
edge of P2ast Hartford. The Deacon was anxious about her; he was afraid that she niiglit be covered with 
the snow, and sutlcring fVom want. He [iroposeil to vi^it her; but his friends thought it perilous to cross 
the meadows; but being light of foot he re^olvcd to attempt it. The weather was cold and the .-r.ow slightlj- 
crusted on the top. By means of tliis he succeeiled, with some effort, in reaching the widow's house. As 
he su]vposed, he found it covered with snow to the chimneys. He made his way into the house, and found 
the good ^ister without fire or water. He cut paths to the wood-pile and to the well, and asjisted her to 
make a fire and put on the tea-kettle. He then cut a path to the pig-pen and sup[>lied the wants of the 
hungry beast, by which time breakfast was ready. After breakfast, he read the Word of God and prayed, 
and was ready to start for home. In the meanwhile, the sun had melted the crust of snow, and as he was 
passing through the meadows, he broke through. He tried to scramble out, but failed. He .--liouted, but 
there was no one to hear him. Tiie wind began to blow keeidy ; and he did not know but that he mu-t 
remain there all night and perish with cold. But he committed him^elf to God, and sat down for shclli.r 
on the lee-?ide of his temporary prison. He tiiialh" made a de.-perate effort, succeeded in reaching the ed^e, 
and found to his joy, that the freezing wind had hardcued the surface of I he snow, which enabled him to 
make his way home. 

'• On a iili-a>ant Sabljath morning, some seventy years ago, mitrht be seen a little group, wemling their 
way from Hartford, througii the green wools and meadows of the Connecticut valley, towards ilie little 
church on Zion"s Hill. Among them was a man of small stature, something like Zaccheus of olii, of erect 
gait, briglit eye and agile movement. Tiiough living eighteen miles from Sutlield, he was wont, on plea-ant 
days, to walk the whole 'li-tanee, beguiling the way with devout meilitation ; or if some younger brother 
chose to accom[)any him. with pleasant talk about the things of the kingdom. Tiiis was Deacon Jnhii 
Bolles, brotiier of Ilev. D.ivid Bcdies, and uncle of the late excellent Uev. Matthew Bolles, and of Dr. 
Lucius. Bolles, so well known in connection with the cause of i'ori'ign missions.

and a fi-w others caino lo the ronclu.-ion \\irA the time hail arrived to organize a ISapti^t C'Inin-h in the city 
of Ilarll'ord. I'reviou-; to that, th<'y had lieUl Mici'tinjrs ju the Court Ilou-e. an<l in private liouses. and ou 
the liftli of Aujii-t, 17.-^0. tlie tiist baptism, according to our u,-atre, was admini.-tcred in this city. On Sep- 
tember 7th. it was re-olved to hold public services on the Sabbatii in a more Ibrmal wav. Accordiiiiilv, the 
Krst meeting of this kind was held October Istli. in the dwelling house of John Ijolles. Tliese services were 
continued, and in the ensuing season, a number of per-ons were bai)tized 'on a j>rofessioi! of their t'aith 
in tlic lAird .Jesus Chri.-t.' On the "2;!d of JIarch, 17'J0, sixteen brethren and sisters were recognized as a 
Church of Christ, by a regularly called council, over which Kldcr John Hastings presided as Moderator." 

"A\ !ien the Bapti.-ts began to liold public service-, an over zealous member of Dr, Strong's Society, (the 
Centre Congregational Society.) called ujion him. and askeil him if he knew that '.John LJoUes liad started 
an opposition meeting?' 'No,' said he; 'when, where!'' 'AVhy. at the Old Court House.' 'Oh. yes. I 
know it,' the Doctor carelessly replied; 'but it is not an op]iosition meeting. Thev are Iiaptists, to be sure, 
but they preach the same doctrine that I do: you had better go and hear them.' • Go I' said the man, 'I am 
a Presbyterian!' 'So am I." rejoined Dr. Strong, 'but that need not prevent us wishing them well. You 
had better go.' 'No,' said the man. with energy, 'I sha'n't go near them. Dr. Strong, a'n't you going to do 
something about it ?' ' ^^'hat ?' ' .Stoj> it. can't you ?' ' ^ly friend.' said the Doctor, seriou.-ly. 'Jiibn Uolles 

I is a good man. and will surely go lo heaven. If you and I get there, we ^hall meet him, and we had better, 

I tlierefbre, cultivate pleasant acquaintance with him lierel'"

Here ends the Genealogy of Tliomas Bolles, oldest son of Jo-eph and Mary Bolles. I now return to 1046, and t:ike up 
the Genealogy of Samuel Bolles, second son of Joseph aud Mary Bolles. born at Wells, Jle., 1G46, died at Rochester, 
Mass., 17 — . 




I have spent mncli time, but to littlo purpose, in my enr?c;ivors to compile a toleral)ly full and accurate frenralojry of this 
junior branch of the Joseph Bolles of WoUs Family- Unwiilinji: to throw away even tliis poor product of my [laiustaking 
eObrts, I ffubuiit it with all its defects to such as care to follow me over a tield whose gleanings are so meagre. 

Samiel Bollfs. third child of .Joseph and JIary BoUes of "SVells, Me., b. in Wells, March 12, IGIG; m. Mary, dau. of 
William l\ver of Shccp-<-ot, Me., (Xi-w Dartmouth). • In l(''f>8. as appears by the town record-, the inhabitants of Wells 
granted him oOO acres of land, on condition tliat he sh.ould "improve the same within a year." He afterwards removed to 
lioche-ter, ^lass. One of his dcscciiihuils informs me that "'after being three times burnt out in ?>Iaine, by the Ir.dir.n-^. he 
moved fir>t to Clark's Island, in Ilo-lim Harbor, and next to Roche-ter. Ma--., where he clianged lands witli Samuel 
Hammond, and that his house was about two miles nortii of JIattapoisett Village." He and liis wife were living in 1713. 
In June, 1712, they conveyed to Henry Flint of Cambridge "000 acres of land, situated in New Dartmouth, alias Shcep- 
scot, commonly known bv the name of Dyer's Xeck. or ^^'ossacmac, which said neck of land," says the deed, "was foimerly 
granted bv Ivor.ix Hood. Sngomore of the said Xassacmnc. unto Willi;im Dyer, father of the said JIary." — (York County 
Rcj. of Uecth, Book \b. pofjc 'I'lA). In 1713, they conveyed to Samuel Hammond of Rochester 310 acres of land, '• lying 
in the township of Wells." — (Book S. p>iffe 120.) Dyer and his son, Christopher, were killed and scalped by Indians at 
Dyer's Neck. — (S'-e njUdai-its in I'ork Reg., B. 15, p. 228.) Neither record nor tradition gives the dates of Mr. and Mrs. 
Bolles's death. They had three children, viz., 1, JosErii; 2, S.\>iuel ; 3, Jox.*.tu.\x ; who were born, ic, as follows:
